I Followed Lizzo's Vegan TikTok Diet For A Day And, Honestly, It Felt Good As Hell

When I found out that Lizzo, the Queen of Body Positivity herself, was vegan and had started posting "What I Eat in a Day" videos on TikTok, I knew what I had to do.

For a whole day, I followed exactly what Lizzo ate in a day based on the first TikTok video that she had posted of this kind, and afterwards, I must say, the queen killed it and I will be making some of her meals again.

Breakfast: 10:00 AM

On TikTok, Lizzo says she starts out her day with a green smoothie. This is actually something I usually do, too, and I usually use nearly the exact same ingredients: frozen fruit, some greens, and coconut water.

I also like to add in half of a banana for extra thickness and spirulina powder as a source of protein and iron, but other than that, I already have Lizzo's breakfast smoothie down to a T! It was super easy and refreshing.

Lunch: 12:00 PM

After finishing morning yoga, I decided to fix myself up the kale salad Lizzo included in one of her TikTok videos.

I stir-fried some kale in a pan with olive oil, along with some broccoli, white onions, and some carrots. I also cut up and avocado, but instead of putting it to the side as Lizzo did, I diced it up and added it to the rest of the salad out of personal preference.

It was still super tasty and I had a lot leftover so I stored the rest in my fridge for dinner, as she had.

Snack: 2:00 PM

I admit, I was still a little bit hungry after only having that salad, so I prepared myself a snack at around 2:00, after I had caught up on some work for my summer classes. I decided to go to my pantry to look for an afternoon snack.

I didn't have the keto corn puffs that Lizzo showed in her TikTok, but I did have these vegan Hippeas Chickpea Puffs in the flavor "Nacho Vibes" which I thought were similar enough. I poured myself a serving's worth in a bowl and dipped them in some hummus, as Lizzo did with her snack.

I actually really liked this combination! The airiness of the puffs and the smoothness of the hummus did not immediately replicate the taste or texture of a Hot Cheeto, which was what Lizzo said she used this snack to replace, but it was still super tasty and was also a quick and healthy way to get in some protein!

Dinner: 6:30 PM

Taylor Huang

I didn't have the mushroom balls that Lizzo showed in her video, so instead, I decided to make my own! If anyone is wondering what recipe I used, I chose to use this one. They weren't perfectly shaped, as you can probably tell from the pictures, but still tasted delicious!

I also took the salad I had made earlier out of the fridge, and cooked up some chickpeas and quinoa to add to my dinner plate.

Dessert: 7:30 PM

Taylor Huang

Before hopping on a 7:45 Zoom meeting for an organization I am a part of at school, I decided to make Lizzo's peanut butter jelly smoothie because I too, was craving something sweet.

I added peanut butter, a few frozen mixed berries (I didn't have just strawberries like Lizzo did), oats, oat milk, and vanilla protein powder to my Vitamix and blended it all up.

This actually tasted so amazing and not only did it make a killer dessert, but I could definitely see myself making this again as a post-workout snack.

Final Thoughts:

Lizzo was already an inspiration to me before this challenge and I adore her music, her message, and the confidence she radiates.

Doing this little challenge was actually something I found to be super fun because I kind of had all my meals set up for me in advance, and it just helped that they were super delicious and I didn't really need to modify anything!

To quote Lizzo herself, I felt "very lit and full."

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

The Caribbean is a place where people go for vacation, but if you set out from a cruise ship you miss out on all the beautiful culture. Their exotic beaches are nothing without their zinging food and hospitality. Locals in the Caribbean are warmhearted with a zest to live life to the fullest.

This is exactly where most of their words and phrases come from, having a good time. I definitely enjoyed myself living in the Caribbean, but it's not always about lounging. They get work done too and I've learned proper phrases for accomplishments.

According to Urban Dictionary, a "simp" is defined as "a man that puts himself in a subservient/submissive position under women in the hopes of winning them over, without the female bringing anything to the table." There are many other definitions for a "simp," but basically it's shaming men who are kind to women without getting anything in return.

Let's just stop attacking nice men. Work out your own issues, don't project your shortcomings onto another man. What happened to the brotherhood? Y'all can lie for each other, but can't raise each other up? You guys can encourage murder, gang rape, and violence against women — or at least stay silent about it — but can't let your brother know it ain't cool when they bring you down for being nice to women with no expectation?

Self-Love Is The Best Love, That's Just How It Is

Do you ever feel like you can't please everyone? Self-love will do the trick.

I've been feeling a little down lately, with the understanding that friends don't last forever and that I can't always please my parents. Life has been rough for everyone lately and it's not easy to stay happy and optimistic during these times. But I promise you, you are on this earth for a reason. You are here because God formed you, to love, and to be loved.

When things are tough, realize that you have yourself always. No one can take that away from you. You will always be you. No matter who you are, what you believe, or where you've been in life, at the end of the day, you are you. You can love you, therefore giving you one reason to stay here on this Earth.

Nobody Wants To Grieve, But That's The Price We Pay For Love

Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right.

Death always seems to come when life is good and everything starts to be going alright. And then out of nowhere, you're reminded of how cruel life can be. The stages of grief don't always go in order, they come in waves or all at once. Grief never comes when you think it should. It comes when a certain song comes on or the sun shines through the window just right. I take comfort in the fact that everyone experiences grief, even when you feel all alone knowing that everyone goes through a process that helps a little bit.

Giving your life story is never easy, but it can be, if you want to make a difference.

Growing up in Georgia was not always the accepting place we know it to be today thanks to Atlanta. Let me preface this by saying, I had a pretty good life growing up. I was raised by a single mother who sacrificed so that I could live the life that I lived. I was spoiled rotten. One way that my mother spoiled me was through clothing.

These 10 Black Women Were Our 2000s Fashion Icons — We're Still Replicating Their Looks Now

We recollect on some of the Black stars who served as fashion icons during the 2000s.

When we talk about the 2000s, it's always filled with nostalgia. For most of us, we grew up during that era with the razr flip phones or sidekicks, and decade staple designers like Juicy Couture, Von Dutch, and Ed Hardy. It was time of daring fashion choices and red carpets that we now look back on and say, "what were they wearing?"

A sector of people that exemplifies the fashion icons who ruled the 2000s, were Black women. So, I feel as though it's my duty to shine light on these fashion icons. Here they are:
